Bushcraft is not survival. It’s about being able to use the woodland and our surroundings to keep you warm, sheltered, fed and watered and above all comfortable. Being able to use nature’s bounty to remain comfortable, means that you carry knowledge, rather than many kilo’s of “Essential Kit” and supplies.
Our Bushcraft sessions include activities such as:
- Woodland shelter building & design
- Natural foods and camp cooking
- Safe use of cutting tools and making natural tools
- Getting a fire going without matches.
Theses are not Forest School sessions and have different practices and ways of working. If you would like a forest school programme, training or taster please give the Sandwell Forest School’s co-ordinator a call on 0845 352 7851
